Fashion After 40

Written by Diana Pemberton-Sikes

With so many designers and trends targetingrepparttar svelte body ofrepparttar 141985 twenty-something, is it possible to look fashionable asrepparttar 141986 years pass and your body begins to tellrepparttar 141987 tale?


In fact, with a little ingenuity and sleigh-of-hand, it's easy to be fashionable and stylish regardless of how many candles are on your birthday cake.

Now let's be frank: unless you work out religiously, you probably don't haverepparttar 141988 same body at 40, 50, or 60 that you did at 25. Time, gravity, and pregnancy all take their toll onrepparttar 141989 female body, as does menopause. And when you mix a mature body with fashions obviously made for a younger person, it can lead to self-doubt, frustration, and confusion.

But it doesn't have to be that way. Getting older also means getting wiser, and like a fine bottle of wine, you're improving with age. So you don't haverepparttar 141990 same body as those twenty-somethings you see in magazines or on TV. So what? Would you REALLY trade everything you've learned since your twenties forrepparttar 141991 body you had back then? Probably no sooner than you'd like to re-live puberty, thank you very much.

So how can you be fashionable without wearing all those body-conscious clothes so en vogue these days? By rememberingrepparttar 141992 "3 C's" when you dress: clean, classic, and coverage.


Clean lines create a clean silhouette which makesrepparttar 141993 body appear more youthful by skimmingrepparttar 141994 trouble spots instead of calling attention to them. Complicated cuts, seams, and details usually call for a killer body to pull off, so if you haven't got it, steer clear of those styles.


Classic styles are called classic because they remain in style year after year. Why? Because they look good on so many bodies! Sheathes, A-line skirts, flat front pants - all tend to flatter a variety of shapes. What's more, because they remain in style year after year, classics are easier onrepparttar 141995 budget than trends.


Covering appropriately isrepparttar 141996 key to aging gracefully. If your upper arms, thighs, and décolletage have all seen better days, it's time to cover them up a bit instead of sharingrepparttar 141997 wear-and-tear withrepparttar 141998 world. Now I'm not talking about draping yourself in a tent forrepparttar 141999 rest of your life. Far from it. I'm talking about wearing short sleeves instead of going sleeveless, Capris instead of shorts, and modest necklines instead of plunging necklines.

Goodnight My Love

Written by Arthur Zulu

Let me uncover you and kiss you goodnight. And Morpheus attend your sleep. Dream not of Kalaharis and of tundras. For treeless or frigid our love will never be. Dream only of Shangri-las and El Doraldos where we shall happily reside.

When you awake, I shall be by your very side to show yourepparttar early rides of Hyperion. Of sun shines and glorious rides our love shall ever be. The envy of forlon lovers,repparttar 141984 epitome of comedies.

Agamemnon himself would do head spin in his grave. And Romeo and Juliet would resurrect and wonder. So goodnight my love, goodnight. One more kiss, goodnight.
